Few data are available about the prognostic role of T wave alternans in patients with congestive heart failure. To assess the ability of T wave alternans, used alone or in combination with other risk markers, to predict cardiac death in decompensated patients, we enrolled 46 patients, mean age 59+/-9, males 89%, ischemic etiology 61%, NYHA class III 35%, left ventricular ejection fraction 29+/-7%. After 1.6 years follow-up, seven patients died from cardiac death (16%), non-sudden in six (86… CONTINUE READING
